Direct from the Runway: Tuleh

Femininity ruled the day at Tuleh. For Fall 2008, Bryan Bradley sent out gorgeous suits, separates and robes crafted in shimmering shades of purple and yellow, creating tapestries of color that were simply stunning. And while some people around me muttered about the trio of robes de chambre that came down the runway at the end of the show, I actually really loved them. But of course what I was really looking at was the hair and makeup ... and femininity was there in spades.

Hair was long and flowing, sometimes tucked under adorable felt fedoras in bold shades of lemon and violet, but mostly left free and of its own volition. With the feathered ends, models channeled Farrah Fawcett a la Charlie's Angels, but in a much more toned-down and subtle way. A slight off-center part created just the tiniest hint of volume, though tresses were shined to the nines to match the glitz of the clothing. I snapped a few pictures that really captured the hair well:

Makeup was also kept on the very simple side. Skin was matte but fresh-looking, and cheeks were subtly contoured with pale rose blush. Lips were slicked with the palest pink gloss, leaving them as nude as they could be while still showing a touch of color! The real focus here was on the eyes -- dark charcoal shadow was brushed across the lids and then angled up toward the browbones, while black liner was drawn across three-quarters of the lower lash lines. But my absolute favorite part was the yellow-gold shimmer placed in the corners of the eyes.

The overall effect was sultry, seductive and definitely one I'd like to try very soon!

And just for your viewing pleasure ... a (very) blurry picture of Bianca and Saleisha from the last season of America's Next Top Model in the front row!
